Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Another20 exchanges are to be converted to ADSL during May as part of BT's ongoing scheme to respond to hotspots of demand for broadband.

So far, 23 exchanges have been converted to ADSL as part of BT's pre-registration scheme. A further 135 are currently being upgraded.

Oh, and there are around 25 exchanges that are within a smidge of reaching their targets which, once reached, will result in BT upgrades to ADSL.

Anyhow, the following are all due to be converted to ADSL during May:

BRIXWORTH, Northamptonshire
GOOLE, Humberside
SLEAFORD, Lincolnshire
NEWTOWN, Mid Glamorgan
NEW MILLS, Derbyshire
HALSTEAD, Essex
THIRSK, North Yorkshire

WARGRAVE, Berkshire
OAKHAM, Leicestershire
HEADLEY DOWN, Hampshire

Congrats to all. ®
